gas in oil does not = milky looking. oil gets milky with antifreeze in it. I would keep changing your oil after each ride and keep an eye on your coolant level . you may have a bad seal or gasket somewhere.

Finally got the oil seals in the water pump. Got it all back together with no leftover parts. :banghead: and no leaks. Knock on wood.

Motor even souns better. Think the stealer didn't have the header pipe installed all the way. Motor always seemed to lug a lot. Not anymore. :busted:

Don't for get to remove the snorkel under the seat and punch some holes in the side cover. She needs to be able to breathe with all that new fuel.

Just got back from an 8 mile ride. Not much but needed to stretch its legs after it being laid up for two weeks waitin on seals and the time to install them.

WOW factor is way up. Found that the header pipe wasn't fully installed from the dealer. Been riding like this for nearly 18 monthes. Guess the WR likes a little back pressure. :banghead:

I put an '05 headlight with white front decal on my '04. IMO makes the front of the bike look "fresher". Oh yeah, i also had a great ride on her this weekend!!!!
